Rescued...

This Hibiscus....was being pitched....at a local garden center...several weeks ago...It caught my eye..as I was strolling past...it was just a few leaves...on a stick...about 4 inches tall....I pulled it out of the trash...and offered to buy it...but they gave it to me... I set it in front of the shop... and  gave it a little water.... and a Happy place to sit....
 Yesterday...it smiled back...
Oh My... What an AMAZING SMILE! I had no idea...It must be 9 inches...in diameter...
it made my day....

I had a very busy day...2 Sweet Gals popped in... it was Hot...and I don't have air... but they were very determined...and took in the Rabbit Hole....{us Antiquers are a Sturdy Bunch!} They were so nice... we had a great time....Then...Val and Roxanne stopped...I hauled a shelf home for Roxanne, on the 4th...and she was picking it up...they buzzed though the shop...then I took them up to the house to meet Tin Victoria...They Loved Her!
I had been weed whipping...and was wearing my old Harley T....what a goddess...Val and Roxanne...looked Darling...they always do...
Then Patti, stopped by....{Fern Hill} RAGBRAI Folks...Stop at Fern Hill....they are going to have AMAZING FOOD!!! SHADE AND DRINKS!!!! SOUTH AMANA!!!!
They have been making home made Fudge...for the riders... as well...hundreds of pounds of it....and PIES....Wow!
She said, her car thermometer was at 101... no wonder I was sopping wet! I decided to weed whip....this morn...too hot... yesterday afternoon..
I took Sweet Tin Victoria, to her new home, last night...
She was Perfect....for the space!
She is Much....Loved...
John is working on cupboards...I'll have images, later..of one of them...
It was a late night... I wrapped it up, with a Cajun Martini...
I want to go back to K-Paul's...in New Orleans...
I want a Oyster Po Boy....and a Cajun Martini...
Let's Go!!!!
Love to Ya...

{I want to walk down Bourbon Street...in the warm rain....barefooted...Cajun Martini...in hand...and...Gnarly Lampshade...on my head...oh...yea...
Let's Go!!!}
